Jump start your Virginia Tech experience by becoming a part of the Summer Academy today! The Virginia Tech Summer Academy is a new opportunity to launch your academic career in a small classroom environment.
The Virginia Tech Summer Academy (VTSA) is designed to ease your transition from high school to college by coupling required course work with opportunities to become familiar with university expectations, making new friends, and finding your way around campus and the Blacksburg community. Research experts suggest that students who enroll in programs like the VTSA have higher levels of satisfaction in personal adjustment, satisfaction with institutional choice, and a more enriching academic experience than non-participants. VTSA combines popular courses, along with peer mentoring, to promote a sure foundation to start your academic life at Virginia Tech. The VTSA takes place during Virginia Tech's second summer session (July 5 - August 15) and is only available to first year students.
